    hello, i hope everyone had a great new year's eve.

    here's a queation that just popped into my head.

    i'm debating on using ssi to include a navigation bar on the top of every page. but i'm a little hesitant to do that simply for the fear of (or i should say lack of knowledge of) an ssi call failing. does that happen at all?

    i mean, i don't want to put nav links as an ssi on the chance that it might not work. then the user has no navigation to use.

    any thoughts?

    There's no reason it should fail unless the host has a problem in which your site probaly wouldn't be accesable at all. I use SSI on all my sites and recommend it to you as well.

    thanks for the info.
    i decided to go with it last night (SSI that is...)
    i've already done about 10-15 pages that way and the amount of stress was definitely considerably less than had i not used SSI.
